New build. Computer won' boot. Is it my CPU? - Page 4

post #31 of 54
ye you can use any 2nd generation processor to just get it on and download bios update for your mobo, so either swap the mobo for a z77 like xaviergzz stated or buy a cheap sandybridge like the q-series ones update and just sell it lol.

I am not sure if your computer was working before with your spec'd rig. But if it was, and since you mentioned you applied too much paste, there is a possibility that some thermal paste got in contacts with some pins, or components on the board. which may be preventing you from booting up. I've had it happen to me before. Just be extremely thorough when checking and make sure there is no remnants of the thermal paste on the sides or even on the CPU pins on motherboard it self. I know the thermal pastes have a tendency to get very stick and sneak into cracks and corners hard to find. Use a tissue paper that doesn't leave tissue residue and use some isopropyl alcohol and clean any areas on the motherboard in contact with thermal paste.

May be that will help you. smile.gif

yeah, but dont touch the cpu pins on the mobo, especially with a papaer towel. they are extremly delicate and bend super easy voiding your warranty.

What I done in the past to clean up or do anything on the mobo when the cpu is not installed, is that I put the socket cover right away, the only time I take it off is right beofre I install the cpu. If I take it off, I cover it. Period.

Be really carefull man, would not want you to turn your mobo into a paper weight!

I am uploading some video's on to youtube. I ended up taking everything out of the case. Yet nothing worked. frown.gif

yeah, nothing spilled over to the socket. When I removed the CPU to clean it, i placed the cover on the socket.

Out of curiosity I googled the issue. As mentioned already, that board requires a BIOS update to work with that CPU.
Excerpt from 1 article on toms hardware:
Quick post to everyone here having the same issue, i have the P8Z68-V PRO/GEN3 mobo and was having the same issue with my i5-3570k CPU. This is my first build so i dont have any older parts and didn't feel like bringing it to PC repair shop. A week later i finally found it was incompatibility issues with Ivy Bridge (after thinking it was power supply or mobo messing up) since my mobo was running on 0301. Here's what to do:

Head over to Asus support website here:
http://support.asus.com/download.a [...] Boiqs2jqua

Download the 3202 rom and extract the file onto a FAT32 USB device

Don't put the USB device in the mobo just yet as it wouldn't let me reach the BIOS, only tell me that there's no OS. Once you do get to the BIOS (after a few failed boot i'm guessing) insert the USB Key (be extra careful not to fry anything since MOBO is running and go to:

Advance -> Tools -> EZ Flash Utility (or something like that)

It will install the update. I just did it and i got 5 successfull boots/resets in a row without any issue. It should be worth noting that i did it with a barebread setup, i only had Mobo, CPU, CPU Fan, GPU and Power supply while doing it.

Hope this helps a few people, this was an incredibly frustrating week, especially with Diablo 3 being released next week. I'll put everything in the case and install Windows, i'll update later if anything goes wrong or fine.

PS: Sorry for my english.
